    Hi! Connie, just want to ask if what kind of red wine did you used? Is it sweet, dry, semi-sweet, etc.???

    • It says right there in the list — “fruity red wine”. That’s how the wine is labeled.

        Côtes du Rhône, a type of wine and also the name of the place where it is originally made, is the best choice for cooking wines. Katumbas siya ng grenache sa mga wines na gawa sa US. Merlot is 2nd choice.

        • I find merlot too dry for drinking and cooking. I prefer semi-sweet wines. Of course, what wine is good for cooking and drinking is always a matter of personal preference. :)

    there’s a popular brand of red wine that’s sold in a small bottle now — it’s more than enough for one recipe and a few sips. must try this soon ;)

    Hello Connie, can I use Mompo, the grape wine used in Mass.?

    comparable to the 12-oz softdrink bottle, i guess. i didn’t check the content’s volume but rather the price which was around 70-80 PHP then.

    Hi connie, i just love your site! For a newbie like me your recipes make me feel like a pro. :)
    I tried cooking this recipe this morning. The taste was great. But the meat was hard even after 2 hrs. And i added almost 6cups of broth. Could you help me which part i could have done wrong? Thank you :)

    • If the beef is still tough after two hours, it’s the quality of the beef that’s the problem. Either the animal was too old or you were sold carabo meat.

    Off-topic, may I suggest that you share your recipes in Pinterest for a broader audience?

    I really love everything about your blog and it would be worthwhile to make it available in Pinterest, too. You only need to register a Google account and you can log in to Pinterest.
